Solutions Outpatient Services Adds Clinical Dashboards, Wearable Technology and Smartphone App to Improve Substance-use Treatment
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Dallas, TX: For individuals recovering from using substances like alcohol, a new kind of technology-enabled recovery system is helping to improve treatment in Dallas. This kind of enhanced recovery treatment is making a positive difference in the lives of patients at local recovery treatment center, Solutions Outpatient Services.
Every year in the United States, more than 1.6 million people enter addiction treatment, with dismal results. More than half fail to complete treatment, with more than 24% dropping out of treatment altogether. Austin-based company ViviHealth is changing that.
Among the breakthrough technology developed by ViviHealth is an integrated patient insight system called Vivi360. Vivi360 combines clinical dashboards and a smartphone app that employ a range of technological advances, such as wearable health monitors (like a Fitbit), pocket blood-alcohol content monitoring, machine learning and artificial intelligence, all based on decades of addiction research. Coinciding with this technology is the recent ramp-up of remote monitoring and telehealth in addiction treatment facilities across the country. Over the last 25 years, addiction treatment providers like Solutions Outpatient Services have expanded their range of services to include improvements to remote monitoring, spurred on by the opportunity to better serve the needs of their patients.
“The Vivi360 system gives us ongoing and relevant insight into how patients are doing,” says Soutions Outpatient Services’ Lois Jordan. “It has helped us provide a safe and healing space for our clients and their families.”
Solutions Outpatient Services, an outpatient alcohol, drug, and codependency treatment program in Dallas, is piloting Vivi360, as has Longbranch Healthcare in Louisiana. Patients use the system by wearing a health monitoring device combined with a smartphone application called ViviCompanion. The application provides personal insights, self-care content, and connection to supporters, and can even be used by the patient after they complete treatment.
For the millions of people nationwide suffering under the growing weight of addiction, technology-enhanced care made possible by solutions like ViviHealth could not be more important. Improving recovery care at treatment centers like Solutions Outpatient Services is part of ViviHealth’s mission of improving and saving the lives of those in recovery.
Chris Lawless, co-founder and CEO of ViviHealth states the mission plainly: “We exist to make life-saving technology available to recovery clinics, so that they can better fulfill their mission of supporting and caring for those in recovery.”
